Windows 7: Windows wont boot

Windows wont boot

So I just finished installing photoshop and dreamweaver on my computer, and I planned on restarting to install some important updates (windows automatic updates). So after Everything installed, I clicked shut down, and it installed 7 updates. After that finished, I went to turn the computer back on, I get nothing. The only thing I see is the intel motherboard image/screen. It wont go any farther than this. It wont even let me boot from a cd or anything. What should I do???!

Reset BIOS if your not getting past boot screen.

Tried that with no luck. I tried 2 different ways. Resetting the jumper pins, and also pulling out the battery. No difference yet

Hmm.....

Unplug Hard Drive/s, does the system boot past the flash screen?

Not sure what else you need to know about it? Back when I built it, this thing was a beast (a few years ago). I've had to reformat a couple times, and this time I decided to put windows 7 on it, and completely wipe off all my HD's.

It was running smooth until this happened. I'm on my laptop now, searching for answers. I dont mind completly reformating my harddrive again, since I just did it about a week ago, and dont have very many programs on it yet. I just need this thing up and running again so I can start making money again (graphics and web design).

If you are not able to boot from bootup cd and not completing bios post than it may be dying motherboard or dead motherboard battery, because if bios working than it should ideally take you to os, may be floppy seek?, some motherboard come with bios halt if a specific device not found.

You think it's just a coincidence that right after I did the updates, the motherboard died? Could it be the motherboard battery?

Even if board battery was dead, this is not going to prevent the system from booting correctly, the battery is there to 'contain' the settings within your BIOS when the system is shut down. If the battery is dead, then all that would happen is that you would have to enter settings in BIOS every cold boot, as they would be cleared at shutdown due to lack of power to the CMOS from the dead battery. But you cant enter BIOS???

I'd unplug everything and start a process of elimination, bare board adding one component at a time, I think this is a coincidence, as I cant see how updates/software could be causing a hardware malfunction?
